Thank God! Jesus did not give up on us

“Christ existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through Him God created everything in the Heavenly realms and on earth… Everything was created through Him and for Him. He existed before anything else, and He holds All creation together.” Col 1:15-17
Fast forward to verse 18 “He is the head of the body, the church; He is the source of the body’s life. He is the first-born Son, who was raised from death, in order that He ALONE might have the first place in all things… Through the Son, then,, God decided to bring the whole universe back to Himself All things, both on earth and in Heaven.
Verse 23… “But now, by means of physical death of His Son, God made you His friends in order to bring you, holy, pure and faultless into His presence.”

Colossians chapter 1 is quite a mouthful but I mean goodness, it is such an important chapter and really defines the true essence of Christ Jesus as the Only Son of the Living God and it goes to show that if it was not for Jesus we would not be in right standing with our Father God in Heaven. I love how the Bible showcases the role of Christ in Holy Trinity. God the Father Created the universe through the Word and we know that the WORD is Jesus Christ Himself, and what excites me even more is how Jesus has been the ultimate Promise of God to reconcile us with Him.

The Holy Spirit reminded me that every promise that God has made over me is brought about through Jesus Christ and because of what Jesus Christ has done for me, that is why Jesus said that we should ask God our Father for anything in His Name. The name of Jesus is not just any other name, God gave Jesus Christ the name as the official and final name that is above every other name. It is the name of the Son of the living God. The First-Born Son might I add. Would you give up your only son the first born at that to die for the sins of people that may potentially reject you and your son?

So I want to say Thank You to God that 1. God the Father gave up His One and Only Son Jesus Christ to leave His rightful place with Him in Heaven and come to earth (where it really is not an ideal place someone from Heaven would choose to spend even a second in) to die for our sins, fulfill the Law for us, defeat death and the power of sin over humanity as well as give us eternal life. I mean I truly believe that although Christ was fully God and fully human, He could have still decided to not go through with the mission of God. And God the Father? having decided to send His Son to suffer for us knowing all too well that we human beings can and will reject His Son and His sacrifice for us. The Holy Spirit, knowing that we will grieve Him and at times disobey Him, He still chooses to never leave nor forsake us. What is that? The love of our amazing God.

He gave it all up for us to be reconciled back to Him, us? human beings? fragile, disobedient, unpredictable, easily fooled and mere sheep. God is indeed Love, Jesus Christ with no sin chose to be obedient to the point of suffering what we should rightly suffer because of our unrighteousness and He continue to leave the 99 to find the 1. God wants to do life with us so much that He sent His Only Son to be our Savior and the Way back to Him. So Thank You God in short for never giving up on us. We serve an amazing God and we stand in awe!
